The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Adapted by Richard Dinnick.
Young Dr. Mortimer ventures from Devonshire to Baker Street with news of the death of his friend, Sir Charles Baskerville. Can it really be that the grisly legend of the hound of the Baskervilles might have something to do with the case?
Holmes will have none of it, but even he must accept that dark forces are at work. Dark forces that, it seems, Dr. Watson must face alone...afoot!
"The real revelation is Nicholas Briggs's performance as Holmes. Confident and assured, yet understated, and shot through with just the right amount of emotion, bravado and eccentricity, Briggs has delivered one of the definitive portrayals of the character...along with Rathbone, Brett and Lewellyn."

"Nicholas Briggs and Richard Earl, a formidable, intelligent duo, who make the most of their characters. Watson is especially important in the Big Finish productions, as his narration underpins the story to a greater extent than I can recall in any other such audio drama, and Richard Earl is fully equal to the task. This production of
The Hound is nail-bitingly exciting, as it should be...." (
